  Purpose
This will be a retrospective study that includes retrospective chart reviews at major institutions across Canada. The intent of the study is to generate both regional and national incidence data for non-Candida invasive fungal infections (IFI) in high risk participants. The study will include participants receiving stem cell transplant and high dose chemotherapy treatment for leukemia.

Condition Intervention
Mycoses Leukemia Other: Standard Care

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With Non-Candida Invasive Fungal Infections at a Single Institution [ Time Frame: 365 days ]
    Data were extracted from participant hospital records from the time of initiating chemotherapy or conditioning regimen for their stem cell transplant (index date) until one year post-index date, in order to determine the percentage of high risk participants with non-Candida invasive fungal infections.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Participants With a Specific Fungal Pathogen at a Single Institution [ Time Frame: 365 days ]
    Data were extracted from participant hospital records from the time of initiating chemotherapy or conditioning regimen for their stem cell transplant (index date) until one year post-index date, in order to determine the percentage of participants with a specific fungal pathogen.

  • Percentage of Participants With Invasive Fungal Infections in Canada [ Time Frame: 365 days ]
    Data were to be extracted from participant hospital records from 5-9 centers across Canada starting from the time of initiating chemotherapy or conditioning regimen for their stem cell transplant (index date) until one year post-index date, in order to determine the percentage of high risk participants with non-Candida invasive fungal infections.

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Participants at high risk for IFI
Participants will be considered high risk if they are undergoing high dose chemotherapy for leukemia. This includes, but is not limited to participants with acute myelogenous leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, or myelodysplastic syndrome. Participants are also considered to be at high risk for IFI if they have undergone allogeneic hematopoietic stem-cell transplantation.
Other: Standard Care
Health-care interventions will be recorded; no additional procedures outside the standard of care will be required.
